Grand Bay, AL, 36541
Pet name:
Red / Chestnut / Orange
Meet Sam. Sam is a sweet but timid dog and our longest resident at almost 4 years. Sam came to us as a mangy 6 week old baby with his siblings back in July of 2017. He was adopted but sadly was returned due to his fears at around 6 months old. With a little patience he would be a great calm addition to the family. Everything scares Sam until hes sure its not going to hurt him. Sam does great with other dogs after he gets to know them. Hes a little snappy if they are in his face the first week hes trying to adjust to his new environment. Sam is very happy and playful with other dogs after he knows they are not gonna hurt him and hes a little more comfortable in his new home. Sam would do best in a Quiet Home without children/teens. Even though Sam is a Shy/skittish boy, he warms up slowly. Sam will never be a lap baby but will lay beside you on couch/bed and will let you pet him once hes comfortable and settled. Sam has even been known on ocassion to play a quick game of chase and paw at the peoples hand and although they are a few rare moments it shows he at times can feel very comfortable and play with people. Sam loves a good game of fetch outside. Sam is house and crate trained. Walks pretty good on a leash. He absolutely adores his foster dad. Sam is around 3.5 years old and 30 lbs. Hes a terrier mix and is utd, hw negative (tested below detectable levels) and neutered! Sam has been in foster care so long we know there has to be a home out their for this special boy. With a little patience you will have the best buddy. 

All dogs have a $175 adoption fee which includes vet check, age appropriate shots (atleast 2 sets for puppies), dewormer, heartworm test (if over 6 months), rabies (if atleast 16 weeks) and spay/neuter! Puppies will be altered before adoption. All rescues and shelters practice pediatric spay and neuter. This is essential in our rescue efforts and it is a policy that we will stick by. All dogs over 8 weeks and 2 pounds will be altered before adoption. There are no exceptions to this rule on all healthy and adoptable dogs. 

Puppies/Dogs that are not available for adoption due to vetting not being complete can be reserved with an approved application and a non refundable $50 deposit. This deposit is applied to your adoption fee and the remaining $125 is due at pick up.

Wags and Whiskers is an all-volunteer rescue. We also have full-time jobs and Families. We will try to answer all questions and applications in a timely manner. Please be patient and bear with us . Do not contact Parkway Animal Hospital as they are a vet clinic and can not answer questions on behalf of Wags and Whiskers. All questions and comments must go directly through the rescue. Thank you for your understanding.
